Yes it should.

I don't think any changes were made to the tailgate during that generation.

The 78 is the same as 87, I think the only thing changed on the body from 78-87 is the single headlight front clip to the dual headlight front clip

Although you can get them with or without the liscense plate bucket depends on what you had orignally

All original tailgates in that time-frame had the license plate buckets.
